Reading some of the reactions on Twitter from left-wing celebrities during the presidential debate Tuesday night, one could almost predict their tone and choice of words.
And there was little doubt which candidate would draw their ire.
It's true, folks: President Donald Trump doesn't have many fans among the Hollywood elite — and those elite were out in full force, in real time, so they could bestow upon us all the many benefits of their highly advanced, freakishly evolved sociopolitical points of view.
You know, like this one from Trump impersonator and sometimes arrestee Alec Baldwin:

"Trump needs a beating," eh? Has the president been doubling as a member of the paparazzi or something?
Actor Adam Goldberg had similar thoughts, tweeting that "literally the only way to deal with him is to sucker punch the f***." Apparently after some pushback, the following day Goldberg added, "This was tweeted during a game of thrones watch party. Not sure what you're all on about." Anything you say, buddy.
Indeed, six minutes after his "sucker punch" tweet, Goldberg referred to Trump's "Nazi scum Twitter army":
This is just free air time for his nazi scum twitter army to screen grab memes and GIFS.— Adam Goldberg (@Adam Goldberg) 1601429074.0
Confirmed Trump-hater Alyssa Milano — now known way more for her left-wing activism than for her chops in front of the camera — was convinced the president would "steal the election":
It’s not a matter of *if* Trump’s going to try to steal the election, it is *how*.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa Milano) 1601433497.0
Jason Alexander actually dialed it down a notch from George Costanzaville but still remarked that Trump was unable to behave "like a human":
If Trump could act like a human being and adhere to rules we as a country could actually be served. He is incapable.— jason alexander (@jason alexander) 1601433768.0
Actor Mark Ruffalo didn't threaten to kill Trump or anything — but he did accuse Trump of killing 200,000 people:
Donald had the chance to send every person in the USA masks and he and Jared KILLED it and killed 200k people. How… https://t.co/9NHRc25n2j— Mark Ruffalo (@Mark Ruffalo) 1601430231.0
Iconic novelist Stephen King said Trump's microphone should be cut:
Cut his mike when he interrupts.— Stephen King (@Stephen King) 1601428940.0
Songwriter Diane Warren must have misplaced her thesaurus, as she sadly settled for "STFU U orange f***."
Other celebrity tantrums included:
This is what happens when you elect a sociopathic reality show host to run not only the country but to dictate how… https://t.co/tAACb6KDe3— billy eichner (@billy eichner) 1601429122.0
